We all love a good game of musical chairs, and now, Nickelodeon is bringing musical chairs to another level with its brand new, digital short-form series, Drop That Seat, which is set to debut on January 1, 2019 at 10:00 AM ET. Talk about an amazing way to kick off the New Year! Drop That Seat, which is created and executive produced by Nick Cannon, will give real kids the chance to show off their best dance moves as they try to become the next musical chairs champ. The live-action game show is hosted by Knight Squad‘s Daniella Perkins and So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation star Kida The Great.
According to the press release, “Drop That Seat is a competition series inspired by iconic dance moves and filled with unique twists, turns and challenges, as kid contestants dance and race to a chair once the music stops. The winning team will receive cash and music-themed prizes.”
Daniella Perkins shared her excitement over hosting this outstanding, new show and wrote along with the post seen below on her Instagram account, “this is a gratitude/motivational post for all u that have been here with me. even since legendary dudas & @perkinssisters dance days :) i’m just a kid from nothing with a young single mom who allowed my sister and i to dream. four years ago i would have never believed where my life is now and we’re just getting started! growing up with so little really makes me appreciate how lucky i am and how freaking grateful i am for each and every opportunity that comes into my life. if you’re ever feeling lost or like your dreams can’t come true know they can! what you’re born into does not determine your destination. sooo let’s keep pushin! 🛸 & thank you @nickelodeon & @shelly.gillyard for letting me be part of this project! so proud of everything i’m able to be part of. more #knightsquad coming your way, middle school moguls is gonna be so fun!!! vlogs are poppin, tryin to keep my consistency off the charts ~link in bio up top ;) and of course @nickcannon DROP THAT SEAT with me & @kidathegreat coming january 1st!”
